i was looking at the tests done on a bunch of different mufflers. i was always set on get the rogue engineering cat-back but when i saw this picture i kinda changed my mind. does it look like those two pieces have to be welded together. (i dont want to have to go through a whole lot of trouble to get welding done, i just want to get a simple bolt on cat-back) By the way i was looking at this site.

Getting things welded on is really not that hard if you find the right place...me and my friends go to this little whole in the wall place with two lifts and like 5 azn people(no offense) that don't speak english, its called Old County Mufflers....they do all kinds of muffler work its awesome....just look in the phone book and call around some places....btw that exhaust looks good..

No welds, at least im pretty sure those are just slide and clamps

Slide and clamp would suck....after a while they would just come loose and rattle....the muffler would need to be welded onto those pipes....nothing big.....if you got a mig welder or know someone that does.....its a sinch.....but i wouldn't recommend sliding it in and clamping it.....it wouldn't sound the best...

welding really isnt that expensive, i am almost positive you could find a place to weld and install it for under $100. even a well known place like midas should be that cheap
